High Interest Book Baskets

Updated: Oct 23, 2019

What's the best way to motivate young readers?

There are a lot of good answers, but I think the BEST WAY is to share books your child finds interesting. One way I do this with my own children is a Book Basket.

You may ask what is a book basket?

It's literally what it sounds like... a basket with books! Each month, or season, or an upcoming holiday, I switch out the current book selection and update the basket with new and exciting books. Here's a recent picture of our basket:

Book Baskets are a great way to engage young readers.

My children love the Book Basket and are thrilled when they find newly added books. Sometimes, we visit the library to gather books or I go through our collection at home. The key to the Book Basket is the frequency with which you add or change books. There are a few favorites that remain throughout the year, such as books created in their kindergarten classrooms years ago. They love to reread them!

This month we added in a few books about spring and a lot of Easter books:

  • April Foolishness - Teresa Bateman

  • The Thing About Spring - Daniel Kirk

  • Happy Easter, Mouse! - Laura Numeroff and Felica Bond

  • Bunny Trouble - Hans Wilhelm

  • Happy Easter, Little Critter - Mercer Mayer

  • Easter Parade - Lily Karr

  • The Night Before Easter - Natasha Wing

  • Too Many Bunnies - Tomie dePaola

  • Clifford's Happy Easter - Norman Bridwell

  • Happy Easter, Biscuit! - Alyssa Satin Capucilli

  • It's the Easter Beagle, Charlie Brown - Charles M. Schulz

  • Winnie the Pooh's Easter - Bruce Talkington

  • The Tale of Peter Rabbit - Beatrix Potter

I would love to hear what books you're sharing this month! Comment below or shoot me an email!

Hoppy Reading,
